Yoav Galant's purported plan proposes a major US-led reconstruction programme for Syria costing billions of dollars - in return for international recognition of Israel's sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights, and a negation of Iranian influence in the country.
While the plan presented by Galant was meant to be far-reaching, it seeks above all to stymie the Iranian "danger" apparently solidifying on Israel's north-western border, reports Yedioth Ahronoth, an Israeli national daily newspaper.
According to the report, the plan was presented to Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and was unveiled to the Israeli cabinet on Sunday.
According to the proposed plan, Galant argues Israel's best interests are served by preventing the consolidation of an Iran-Syria-Lebanon axis and the establishment of a Shia-dominated Damascus.
Galant's supposed plan further suggests the barring of the Iran-Lebanon overland "corridor" through Syria that would allow for arms transfers to Hizballah. International recognition for Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights is also necessary, in Galant's eyes, for a resolution to the Syrian crisis.
